We're back! Are you confused and intimidated by the overwhelming amount of genre fiction adaptations in television? We certainly are. And this podcast will only make it worse.

But first we spend some time talking about Fallout 4, Wolfenstein The New Order and Shadow of Mordor. Then some listener feedback and show announcements.

We start with a tribute to the late Gunnar Hansen, the actor who first played Leatherface and a cultural look at the paradigm shift with 1970s horror films. We then take a look at the comic book releases for 11/4/2015 and talk about our first "Picks of the Week" for DC, Marvel, Image and the indies.

The first in a planned mega multi-part series from the bloodbath crew. In this first installment, Erik takes us on a trip around the early days of the DC multiverse by looking at the early publishing history of DC comics and how creative and societal pressures influenced the growing canon of what would become the DC Multiverse. We meet early comic book pioneers within DC comics like Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, Harry Donnenfeld and Julius Schwartz. We examine the tradition of alternate dimension story telling in science fiction and fantasy literature going back to early shamanic religious stories. And we take a little side excursion into the real world science of quantum physics.

The little college student who cried "pornography!" The Stand and Dark Tower adaptations. Later on we discuss Stephen King. Batman Vs Daredevil. Why you can't be Batman. The plague of "realism" in comics and related media.
